Theron Hughes is in his 2nd season with the Dartmouth Whalers of the Nova Scotia Major Bantam Hockey League. He is one of the leaders on the young team and as an assistant captain has been a extremely positive force in the room and on the ice. The 5 foot 10 160 pound winger plays a rugged physical game and posesses a heavy shot. The Major Bantam playoffs are about to begin and the Whalers will be leaning heavily upon Hughes and the other veterans as they face the regular season champs, TASA Gulls. John Moore spoke to coach Ryan Boucher and Hughes prior to their last regular season against Western Hurricanes at the Sportsplex.
